Inspector Norse calls

Saturday, 12 April, 2014 0 Comments

On Tuesday this week, the first album by Todd Terje was released. In typical Terje style, it’s titled It’s Album Time. The man from Mjøndalen has a way with words. Whateverest is one of his clever coinings, as is Eurodans. But his greatest success, to date, has been Inspector Norse, which took the dance scene by storm two years ago and which is sandwiched between Oh Joy and Johnny and Mary on the new 13-track recording.

Mark and Moby

His voice is, he says, “as scratchy as a three-day beard yet as supple and pliable as moccasin leather.” He is Mark Lanegan and he is a musical journeyman whose career began in 1984, when he formed the grunge band Screaming Trees. For Record Store Day this year, Lanegan worked with dance music star Moby to release a 7-inch record called The Lonely Night. “I’ve always wanted to work with him,” said Moby. “He has one of the best and most distinctive voices of the last 25 years. Now that we live near each other it ended up being really easy working on a song together.” The Lonely Night is also on Moby’s new album Innocents, which will be released at the end of this month.
